NAME: Kokeshi Jidai Magazine (Traditional Kokeshi). This is the complete set to date EXCEPT for the 1st volume*, plus a notebook.

CONDITION: New

NOTES: There has been a renewed interest in kokeshi in recent years and this magazine was started because of this interest. It's mostly on Traditional Kokeshi but includes Onsen as well, which historically, go hand in hand.

Very lovely magazine. It consists of mostly pictures. This is the related website: Kokeshi Jidai Magazine. The pages are done in picture format so it doesn't lend itself to translation.

Included in this set are Volume 2, 3, 3.5, 4 & just published 5, a notebook, a kokeshi pen and a mini promotional fan. Volume 2 has a few paper items attached, (2012 calendar and bookmark?). Volume 3 has a printed cloth of some type with kokeshi faces and Volume 4 has a book attached titled, "After Tsunami & Kokeshi". The notebook has some pictures with mostly blank pages. It has a protective plastic cover with a zip pouch.

*Volume 1 is sold out and is out of print. Will keep looking for used ones but these are running quite high in price now. One current listing has a price of near US$200 for v1, 2 and 3.5)

11/15/2015 I believe volume 11 has been published now.

These are not inexpensive magazines (more like books). This, combined with the poor exchange and heavy weight, makes them quite expensive to import. Volume 5 price has increased to an equivalent of $25.00. My cost per set is US$172.00. To this I am adding $15.00 for flat rate box to U.S. addresses (least expensive way to send), plus a modest $23.00 mark up (13%) to cover my labors.

International customers please note: These will be extremely expensive to ship as the weight is over 6 pounds, not including packing materials or box. Our postal service does not offer surface mailing. If you are interested, kindly advise and I will add the additional cost of shipping to the listing BEFORE you make the purchase. An additional transaction for shipping fees will not be acceptable on this purchase.

If you periodically visit Japan, you would be better off buying these directly. They are sold at many of the kokeshi shops and then you can also try to find me volume 1!

This is a very nice set of magazines for the traditional kokeshi collector but please note, I am not inclined at this point to pursue future volumes because of the expense.
